BACKGROUND Some studies have suggested that a low-protein diet slows the deterioration of renal function in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). The effects of a low-protein diet on renal function and growth, have not been assessed in a large, prospective randomised trial in children with CRF. METHODS A 2-year prospective, stratified, and randomised(More)
In 1988 a European multicentre, randomized trial was started in order to analyse the influence of protein intake on the progression of chronic renal failure in children. Compliance to the dietary prescriptions, i.e. protein intake, was checked by written dietary diaries and in addition by urinary urea-N excretion. This provided a unique chance to compare(More)
In 1988 the European Study for Nutritional Treatment of Children with Chronic Renal Failure started its multicentre randomized trial to investigate the influence of protein intake on the progression of renal failure. A total of 284 children had been registered. Of these 221 were accepted for the study. The data from 105 patients after 1 year of study are(More)
After an adaptation period of 6 months, 200 children (mean age 10.3 years; 138 boys and 62 girls) were stratified according to their renal diseases and the progression of renal failure during the adaptation period and randomized for low protein intake amounting to the WHO safe levels for age (0.8-1.1 g/kg/day) or free protein intake. Energy intake of both(More)
Nutritional counselling is important in the management of children with chronic renal failure (CRF). In 1988, a controlled European multicentre study was started to evaluate the effects of a low-protein diet on the progression of CRF in children. To assess the energy, macro- and micronutrient intake, 4-day weighed dietary records were obtained from 50(More)
